What in the world is ikat?
Ikat (prounounced "eee-kot") is an Indonesian word that means both the weaving technique and the resulting fabric. Prior to weaving, the skeins of thread or yarn are bound with dye-resistant bindings and then dyed in bright colors (think tie-dye, only in this case the threads are dyed instead of the finished cloth). When the threads are woven, the undyed parts work into elaborate geometrical patterns. The origins of the technique are lost to history, as it has appeared all over the world, from Central America, to Japan, to India, and many other countries.
